Hi
I have come across this unusual dish that measures 12 and a half inches across and stands 4 inches high. It was made by Wilkinson Ltd, England. I have found a lot of other things they made but cannot find anything similar and have no idea of age. The gilt on the rim is worn so I think it has been around for a while. Any ideas Guys?

Thanks

Elaine.

    Looks like the mark was in use between 1910-30. Here’s a link to a great Staffordshire pottery resource:

    Couldn’t find the pattern or shape at replacements.com, but I think there’s a similar website in the UK called china finders, so you might have better luck there. I would probably call it a vegetable server or bowl when you search

    Or fruit bowl!

    Hi. it was used for fruit when I was a child. Mum always called it her fruit dish but I think bowl is the correct word. LOL. Thanks. x
